2 minutes for 5000 files? You're sure you don't have the recursive
overlay option turned on? On my test working copy here where I fixed and
tested the 'severe performance degradation' (check the mailing list for
that subject) it only takes now about 2 seconds to get the status of
4500 files.

That's the windows NTFS cache taking effect.

You know that TSVN is GPL? Then you should also know that if you use our
code (even if it's only a small part of it) you have to put your project
also under GPL. If you're only using it in your own company and don't
distribute your project to others, then that's fine. But if you want to
give your project to others or even sell it then you have to give the
sourcecode away too.
We don't like it if other people use our work (and our time) to make money.
